Realism is our key to success. I’m talking about a dude in a space suit and a very large dome helmet. The face inside must be like a photograph so people can really imagine the scene is real. Don’t forget the explosions, lasers and space robots!

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 7.77 out of 10)

    Ah, good ole STEN. Alot of my friends have read them, i’m not sure the covers are awful, they’re just… too bright or something.

    Lets play “Whats behind the price tag?”… i think it says… “APPLE just dont give up” … stupid macs…

    “Quintuple just don’t give up” Five times never lets us down.

    I’m not very good at this game….

    Is that a hinge-thingy just above his cod piece? I hope he’s not ah…um…hairy or that could get painful.

    I assume its orange to camoflage it against the background of continual fiery explosions.

    Also, what exactly are those flying, er, spirit-level-y, stanley-knife-y things in the background?

    The otherwise-excellent Serrano Legacy series by Elizabeth Moon is cursed with covers almost exactly like this one, except the characters depicted are female. They tote huge guns even in the book about horses and the book about (very roughly) care of the disabled, and often dispense with little matters like spacesuits even though the background shows empty space (maybe they’re in front of a really big window, which seems unwise with huge explosions going on out there). They bear no particular physical resemblance to the characters in the books, of course. Artist, Fred Gambino.

    Is that the red protection suit from MythBusters? Because Adam had been wondering where it’d gone.
